Advanced analytics is the next big thing in healthcare. Large amounts of data in combination with deep learning and artificial intelligence will change the way we perform healthcare. As an university hospital we should be leading the pack and in fact we have a dozen of experiments trying to experiment with advanced analytics to build predictive models, create decision support tools, etc. But, we are only doing this at the individual level. And the thing is, adv. analytics will not only change the way we perform care in the process as it is right now, it will change those processes and change the whole system. Doing experiments on the individual, disease specific level does not get us in a leading position. And it will not prevent us of becoming obsolete in 10 years !
To prevent this we should start to innovate at the organizational level. And although innovation is in the genes of the organization, innovation as an organization is not. So the question is: ‘how can we start making sense of advanced analytics as an organization ?’
I would love to receive your thoughts on how to deal with this problem.
